Review: During his time with hyped Parisian combo Venice Beach, DJ Moar has become best known for the formidably floor-friendly style of his cheeky edits and remixes. Here, he takes a different tack, dropping a slinky slice of melodic deepness. There's plenty to admire, from the ocean-deep chords and drifting Rhodes riffs, to the choice vocal stabs and loose-but-hypnotic grooves. Venice Beach predictably provide the obligatory remix, adding a touch more bottom-end bump and a few synth tweaks while retaining the original's casual, late night vibe. Neither version is exactly banging, but that just adds to the EP's relaxed charms.

Review: A special dedication to his formative days praying at the good church of hip-hop, cutting and pasting in Sunday school, Venice Beach member Moar gets down and does the caterpillar. An eclectic ensemble of loops and compositions, this lick shots from Senor Coconut to Bambaataa and back again with its frenetic arrangement of swinging drums, cheeky samples and crafty editing. Highlights include the bongo and fuzz box fusion of "2 vs 2" and low-swung bass shuffle and swing of "Bump On". Moar please!

Review: Venice Beach's DJ Moar goes it alone again for the latest in his long line of classy disco re-edit EPs. The Philly in the title betrays his love of those string arrangements best found here in the lazy disco-rock of the title track. "Bass N Key" instead fuses slap bass funk, mellow keys and dreamy synths, but the highlight here is the almost warped deep and spacey loops of "New Star".

Review: The Editorial re-edit label have a deep sense of purpose and that is to hunt down as many top notch spliced and diced classics and release them quick smart. With over 20 releases in just a few years, they must be pretty good at their job. DJ Steef begins proceedings with the slow and loungey "Rising South Coast", before the temperature rises with the guitar-driven and string-laden funk of DJ Moar's 'Funky French' really starts the party. Things get slow and saucy again though, on Hotbox's "Can't Get Enough" before we get in a sublime disco-house spin with Thomass Jackson's "Luv Doctor". Things end in an upbeat fashion with "Music Is Love" an early 70s slow funk anthem re-tweaked by Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee.
